Stationary and Mobile Flash Butt Welding Systems for Rails

Efficiency and Reliability with the Help of Flash Butt Welding

The flash butt welding method used in this process has proven to be the most reliable joining technology with the lowest fault rates. This is why Schlatter is one of the worldwide market leaders.

Stationary Welding Systems

Stationary systems are mainly used in large welding plants in joining short and long rails.

Stationary Flash Butt Welding Machine GAAS80

The GAAS80 welds short rails of anylength to long welded rails up to 500 mlength and even longer.

Stationary Flash Butt Welding Machine GAA100

The GAA100 is used for welding components in turnout manufacturing plants. The wide welding range allows high quality welding of nearly all types of components used for turnouts. Worldwide the GAA100 successfully welds high resistant manganese frogs with rails with the intermediate stainless steel insert.

Mobile Welding Systems

With the help of the mobile welding systems, continuous track sections are produced directly in-track.

The mobile rail welding machines AMS600, AMS100 and AMS200 are offered in different configurations. Often these systems are self-propelled, truck-based road/rail vehicles or container systems for use on a rail wagon on which they are moved from one welding position to the next.

Mobile Flash Butt Welding Machines for Rails AMS60

AMS60 for high-quality alignment. The development of the AMS60 focused on the exact alignment of the rail ends, laterally at the running edge selectable left/right and vertically at the running surface. Therefore the AMS60 is most suitable where exact alignment is essential - as it is for high-speed railway lines.

Mobile Flash Butt Welding Machines for Rails AMS100

AMS100 for bigger rail profiles. The AMS100 features a lot more welding force than the AMS60 and thus it allows welding of heavy rail profiles and even grooved rails. It is often used for welding of freight train track where heavy rails are used.

Nevertheless the AMS100 has also welded in high-speed lines in various projects and passed the respective homologation processes successfully.

Mobile Flash Butt Welding Machines for Rails AMS200

System AMS200 for closure welds and distressing. The AMS200 is the latest development in mobile rail welding machines, a new generation which enables the distressing and the flash butt welding process to be carried out in one operation, without an additional pulling device.

Container-Based Rail Welding System Supra Multiflex

Container systems are especially suitable for welding in new railway lines where a lot of new rails have to be placed and many welds have to be carried out. They are also often used semi-stationary either in the depot or close to the job site where they weld long welded rails for a certain section of new railway line before they are taken to another section.

Truck-Based Rail Welding System Supra Roadflex

Supra Roadflex systems are self-propelled, they can work completely autonomously and they are very flexible for moving from one job site to the next.
